Head Injury Treatments – Injury Claim Lawyer in Hove

In any serious accident, the patient must be treated with sensitivity and care to ensure that the injury is not made worse. With a head injury this is even more critical as a head injury can lead to brain damage or even death if it goes unchecked. If you have been the victim of an accident and have a head injury, then you should be sure to get the right care both at the scene and then when receiving medical treatment. Use these tips to stay safe after a head injury – even if you don’t feel that it is particularly serious.

At the Scene

The care and treatment for your injury should start right at the scene. The first thing to do is call an ambulance right away, rather than trying to make your own way to a doctor or hospital. If you are with someone who has had a head injury then you should tell them not to move and call an ambulance right away. If it is you who has had the accident then try to move as little as possible and get paramedics to you as quickly as you can.

Once the paramedics arrive they will usually:

  • Check your airways to ensure that you are breathing correctly and there are no obstructions
  • Stop any bleeding or trauma
  • Stabilise your neck using a neck brace
  • Splint broken bones or fractures

At the Hospital

You must be kept for observation until you are thought to be clear of any possible further problems. Doctors decide this according to the Glasgow Coma Scale, which is measured from 3-15 and assesses the possibility of damage to your brain. You must tell a doctor if you are feeling unwell, dizzy or are having difficulty breathing or seeing. If you start to feel ‘out of it’ or feel yourself lapsing into unconsciousness, try to get the attention of medical staff as quickly as possible.

At Home

You should make sure that someone stays with you for up to 24 hours after your accident and continues to monitor your progress. As before, if you start to feel unwell, or think there is anything wrong that shouldn’t be, you should alert your friend or family member and return to the hospital.
